My favorite jewelry box: Jumelle

I love jewels and I’m addicted to watches! I love Bvlgari, Chaumet, Boucheron, Mauboussin, Tabbah, Van Cleef & Arpels and of course; Cartier. All very precious. I love jewelry shops. Sometimes I’m (vèry) glad that I’m not a woman! (lol)….

You know the feeling when you pass that shop window seeing ‘that one item’ oh so beautiful! At Jumelle: ring in rose gold with brown diamonds!

I have some old family pieces’ of old and antique picture frames, like a few Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels sterling frames, some of you will have seen them before in some earlier post as ‘background decoration’. The two Cartier Art Deco Sterling frames here, where a present from Begum Om Habbibeh Aga Khan. Now the frames look really wonderful, but it was not always like that….

Two pictures from Begum Om Habbibeh Aga Khan, framed in antique Cartier picture frames. The picture left was taken at in her garden at Yakymour. The right one at a dinner at Bayreuth Music Fesitval. At Jumelle they did an amazing job to restore these picture frames! (Privat collection)

For a long time they have been in a drawer. They had scratches, dents, and some sadly bad damageOne day I was talking to someone at a local jewelry store nearby, and we had a nice, friendly talk about these frames. She assured me that it would be possible to ‘restore’ them. I brought one of the frames (one at the time), and a talked about the possibilities.

Some time later they give me a phonecall, that the frame was ready. And I can only say: They did an amazing job! Yes, I saw in their store some work they had designed and made, like beautiful sterling candles and sushi-sets, but still, seeing your own item fully restored, is a bit different. I was more then happy! Their silversmith did a great job! So, now I bring from time to time a frame to pollish it or for a complete restoration.

Jewelry Shop Jumelle Yakymour

I’ve been told that they all have a jewelry and/or gold/silversmith background. And I found out that they have a lot of expertise. Coming into the ‘friendly’ shop you wouldn’t expect that they have also some famous watches like Breitling, Christian Dior and Vacheron & Constantin in maintenance. But the do….!!

With brands like Silk, Rabinovich, Rodrigues Cohen, Aller Spanninga (and much more) they have a réal beautiful, and affordable collection. But they have also some amazing unique one-off’s, in all price ranges! And not to forget: a great watch collection of Behring, Ice Watch but also Seiko.

Their friendly shop in the heart of the small village of Bunnik is doing well. Later this year they will move, to another, larger shop in the same street. More space, large windows and an instore ‘atelier’ and an even greater collection!
